Six beautifully hand turned Coasters, finely crafted from the iconic and uniquely Australian Banksia seed pod.

The collection of the Banskia Grandis is highly regulated by the Department of Parks and Wildlife Western Australia.

The seed pods collected and used in creating these beautiful pieces have expelled their seeds and completed the lifecycle of the plant. They are carefully handpicked to ensure no damage is done to the tree itself or the Australian bushland. The collectors go in to the bush on foot, careful not to disturb any surrounding plants or wildlife and no heavy machinery is used during this process.

A royalty is paid to the Western Australian Forestry per seed pod, which goes to aid in forest management and conservation. The pickers are designated certain areas to collect the pods, and these are constantly changing to ensure no one area is ever depleted. Only 10% of the Banksia Seed Pods can be collected in any one area at a time.
